DOCUMENT INFO
Description: Delving into the peasant administrative structure for dispute resolution, Corinne Gaudin explores how the "village community responded to new legislation and administrative practices and how these responses in turn affected the state's reforms" (p. 5). In this richly detailed and thoroughly researched study focusing on the central regions of Russia, Gaudin exposes the inner workings of village politics, addressing not only the relationships between the peasantry and the external administrative structures imposed on them, but also internal village dynamics and the ways that peasants understood and made use of these institutions.
